    DefaultI Tricked Zoe Yesterday.

    For 4 years, I have been entering the house from the garage. She knows it's either SU or me because .... well, just because.

    Yesterday I was wondering what would happen if I entered from the front. As soon as I opened the gate to the yard, I could hear her barking her silly fool head off. Good girl, though. She would scare away any intended intruder.

    Then I opened the 2nd gate to the steps. More bark/bark...."there's a big mean dog in the house, Watch out!! Don't come near" kind of bark.

    I inserted the key in the doorlock...still barking....

    Slowly opened the door...still barking

    then when she saw who it was....her eyes went like this

    then she went into a full wiggle with cup ears.

    mean mommy.

    Oh no. I did it to Billie the entire time I was moving. I always used the side door until the move began and then we had to use the front door. That porch door would open and I'd hear the voice from the crate...

    BARK BARK BARK (big voice)

    Then I'd get to the front door and she'd go BONKERS.

    BARKBARKBARKBARKBARKBARK (in a bigger voice) and add a few growls for good measure. Any intruder wouldn't know she was in a crate her voice was so big they'd not be able to identify where it was coming from.

    Then I'd crack that door open and tell her to hush up. She'd keep barking until I got in the door and then I'd get the tail thumping on the crate and the butt wiggle, but with a bit of a "mom you suck for tricking me" face.

    It worked every time though. For two solid weeks, I'd alternate doors and every time that front porch door opened, same thing....

    Isn't it funny how mean their bark is when they're really a big pile of wiggles? ;D

    Oh she sounds TOUGH when she wants to. For a 60 pound wiggle monster she can sure sound like a 100 pound Rottie if she feels the need.

    Ohh, you are suck a mean mommy!!!

    I've tried to do that to Lexi, but without fail all I get is happy wiggle butt labby. Though there have been times when she's heard things outside, usually at night & you'd think she's going to tear them to shreds. Quite frankly that is just fine by me, let them think twice!

    My pretty girl, Lexi!

    I do this all the time!

    Whoever, there are times Windsor is sitting at the front door and he alerts everyone I am coming up the driveway. So they all pile downstairs to the side door, barking and letting everyone know they are around. So I walk in the front door......................

    If they don't know who is coming the ruccus is enough to scare the entire neighborhood..........

    I get the same face from Fanny if I am able to sneak in....................
